Food Recovery to feed hungry Rhode Islanders is a goal of the RI Food Policy Strategy, the RI Department of Health’s Rhode to End Hunger Initiative and the complementary RI Hospitality Association’s Taste the Waste initiative. EPA’s Excess Food Opportunities Map further highlights opportunities within the State. All of these initiatives support the State of Rhode Island’s 2016 food waste ban.
Join like-minded colleagues from not-for-profits, institutions, K-12 schools, businesses and all levels of government to strategize how to continue to increase the recovery of food going to waste in RI. Goals of the workshop are to highlight success stories, share resources and finally create a working group to further promote Food Recovery under the leadership of the RI Food Policy Council.
